February 4 ~ First Crocus


Today I found the first crocus blooming in my garden. Definitely a sign that spring's on its way! Strangely enough, this is fully open before my snowdrops - they should be open in the next few days I hope. I love this time of year, when buds begin to form and flowers to bloom. Won't be very long and my daffodils will be open too.

Having a lovely lazy Sunday today - we've been out for lunch and will watch the rugby later. Nothing much on the agenda, just a nice day in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lovely pastel colors, AB!

I am so jealous because the spring flowers are starting to grow there! lol It is -12 degrees C (10F) here right now at noon and there is no warmer weather in sight. We will be lucky if the spring flowers start to appear at the end of March or early April.

Beautiful colours and it looks like you had some of the nice sunshine today too :o)

AB - where did you get your little wooden people? I would like one but the ones I've seen al have spikes/stands and so are a bit limiting!

AB said...

You can find them in art supply stores - the stands should unscrew; at least they did on mine!

Hey what a fantastic photo of a crocus. Unusual colour as well. Most I've seen here are purples, yellows and white. That's gorgeous.

As Kaycee has said, I'm so jealous of you having them this far on. We're under deep snow and it will be quite awhile till they are ready to bloom here.

Love your Minkey!

What a wonerful sight. There's always something very special about the first Spring blooms.

Lovely colours and detail. What lens did you use? I'm lusting after a macro lens at the moment - I can't decide what to get and I've only managed to try one out so far :-(

You'd be most welcome to some shortbread - save me eating them all haha!!!
